For those of you who tell me you still pop over to check this out every once in a while- I'm sorry. I guess I needed a hiatus from typing out stories. After a while life gets busy and it's so much easier to ignore the nagging feeling that I need to write about my life. Obviously lots of things have happened since my last post. Malachi's toe healed nicely, and he's been back to the ER only one other time for a bonk on the head. I could go on and on, but instead I'll just move on.
Summer's been really fun for me this year. I've felt very free... I feel so much joy in spending the warm summer days with my son (and in the sun). I've also been pinching myself over my job change. I am finally headed back to Middle School-- what my Elementary adventure taught me was my true passion. While I've loved (and hated) my time in the Elementary school, and I know I learned some important lessons there, I am very pumped to be back where I feel I really belong. I spent a couple of days last week unpacking, and I've even done some professional and fun reading this summer. On top of all of this, we took two wonderful vacations! I really feel like this is the best summer I've had in a long time. It was so good, in fact, that I'm actually feeling ready to go back to work (not draggin my feet because I didn't get enough summer). There's just one week left of the fun, and I think I'll enjoy it. Then off to a happy job! :)
